~Whatcha Working on Wednesday~

My, it’s been a week since I last posted and I don’t really know why except I got called out to work yesterday right when I was going to start on Char’s Valentine penny rug…so that’s been put on hold because today I wanted to “play house” a little bit;)

I found my labels and so thankful I did because I wanted to put new ones on my jars and I had an idea for another item, I’ll show you that in a little bit. When I used the labels I didn’t use any kind of finish and with Stush cooking alot of water marks got on them, I found some matte spray at Walmart… think I’ll have to wait till the garage door is opened to spray though!

Here’s a pic of them, I don’t use the flour, sugar etc, I like the prim graphics on different ones so I put whatever I like on them!


Here in the corner of my kitchen counter I finally hung the pineapple plaque that I got at GW for .99 I just rubbed the sides with some brown shoe polish for now. I put this light here instead of the ball jar one, you can hardly see it but the bulb is a star one. I also added my pineapple candle hug that I bought from Karenmycolonialhome.blogspot.com/.


I also tweaked my stove board!


Added a blue quilted heart to some berries on top of my clock, next to it is an old lanteren that I got at auction a long time ago. It has small spikes inside to put a candle down on, the sides are made of wire.


Took the ladder from the diningroom and put it in the keepingroom, I like it alot better;) and put my folkart dishes in the corner cabinet.


Redid the top of the table too!


Took fabric off of some crocks and added cheesecloth instead, I saw it on a blog and it looked so neat, I couldn’t 100_2334do it to the glass one because you would be able to see the print on top. This is on my hoosier BTW.

Here is the middle part…



Here is proof that I do stitch. lol

Finally here is what I did with the other label, I had this wood box and needed something to put my newer prim magazines in so I put it on the lower shelf of my coffee table.


100_2312My labels are all from Liberty Lane Primitives BTW:) Check her blog out!

Check out Leslie’s My Country Home to see more WWW;)



  1. Everything looks wonderful and i like how you used cheesecloth on the jars.


  2. Rondell, Everything looks great!Nice displays.

  3. Rondell,
    Wow ~ you've been busy! Everything looks wonderful and I especially like the cheesecloth on the jars. I may have to try that!

  4. Loved it all Rondell. I just ordered and received some labels in the mail this week. I just need to get them on something. They are so cute. I like the cheese cloth idea, too. Great post. Julie

  5. Boy, you have been a busy lady! All this looks great! Love your labels. I just got some too. Anxious to put them on my jars! I like your ladder where you put it and the cheese cloth adds just the right touch.
    Wish I could find one of those blue coverlet napkins!

  6. Hi Rondell...I like all of the tweaking you have done today. Gee, that is really a nice sampler that you did too.

  7. Rondell, you really have a knack for arranging everything well. Love all your displays.
    Best wishes

  8. Aren't Susies Labels just great. I have them on several different containers and boxes in my home. You can put them on just about anything.

    Love your tweaking. Its nice to change up a room or an arrangement every once in a while.
    Your stitchwork is really good.


  9. Rondell,
    You were busy tweaking and it all looks very nice :)

    The weeks are flying by, aren't they? Kind of scary!

    Hey, we're getting a heat wave today! The high 30's. We should be having outdoor recess! The kids will be THRILLED!

    Have a great day :)


  10. Gotta love "After Christmas Tweaking". It always makes things seem fresh and new!
    I absolutely love what you are doing...Your home is so cozy. I will be right over for a cup of hot cocoa...I will bring the mini mallows!
    Stay warm!

  11. Rondell,
    Love all the tweaking you have been doing & your stitchery is fantastic.

  12. Rondell,
    I love all the tweaking that you did...everything looks wonderful!! Really love the cheese cloth on the jars!! And what a great stitchery!! I used to stitch, but haven't in a while...hmmmm, maybe I should start one as winter is a good time to do that.

  13. Rondell, as always, your home looks great! I love all your tweaking! Love the pantry jars too.
    And even though I finally got the prim clock I wanted, I still love your's! It is just beautiful to me, like a piece of art. I have room on top of mine to display something but haven't done it yet. Maybe soon...
    Have a great weekend!

  14. Rondell you have been so busy. I always love seeing all the blue in your home. I love all the tweaking you have done.


  15. It's always such fun seeing your gatherings and tweaking, Rondell. Everything looks lovely.

    Take care, my busy friend...

  16. Rondell, All your "playing" house looks great. I don't have time with all the basketball games that I'm sitting through to do anything and when I finally get home I'm too tired to do anything other than knit a little and then head to bed. I've asked you this before - want to come over and fix up my displays???? ~Ann

  17. Hi Rondell! I've just discovered you recently and already in love with your blog! I am now a follower. I love all you've done in your home! The cutting boards in the corner of your kitchen looks great-- a neat idea! I'm loving the cheese cloth too, but I'm such a homespun lover... don't know if I could do that or not. I'm gonna have to check out those blogs as soon as I get done here... thanks!

  18. Hi Rondell,

    I am so glad you found your labels because I just I love what you did with them - very prim!! If I weren't leaning more towards colonial I'd be so tempted to head on over to Liberty Lane and order some. I like that you didn't just use the typical flour on the flour etc.

    I can see how many blue touches you have added over the last several months and it really makes a nice impact in your decorating.

    Peasant bread is like french bread, long and skinny but much more dense. All the stores and bakery around here sell it.

    Have a great weekend!!

  19. Rondell, I LOVE all the new redos. I really like the corner cabinet witht he ladder beside it and the baskets on the peg rack. Of course I like the display on the hooser cabinet too.


  20. i always get so inspired by your blog....thanks for taking the time to share your life! peace, melinda
